Silent Killer


Why did I get so offended when someone talked about cancer or aids 

Cancer took my aunts from me and Aids took my uncle 

Causing chaos and corruption all around 

Family fighting and arguing over nothing 


Losing the ones closest to me 

Making me realize how short life can be 

Live life to the fullest, 

The most over used cliche with actual meaning 


All the jokes about cancer and aids 

"That person is bald she must have cancer"

All go deeper than they should for me
